News on YouTube

YouTube makes it easier to find quality news across the platform by highlighting authoritative sources through a number of product features being launched in countries around the world. For example, when you search for news-related topics, you may find videos from verified news sources in a ‘Top news’ section of search results. Or when a major news event happens, you might see a ‘Breaking news’ section featuring coverage from verified sources directly on the homepage. In some cases, YouTube provides additional context about certain events, topics, and publishers from third-party sources (e.g. Encyclopedia Britannica) alongside search results and videos.

In the Google Assistant app, you can update your profile to include favorite sources. In addition, you can ask for news from a publisher by asking, ‘Hey Google, play ________ (CNN).’ Or easily dive into your specific interests by simply asking, “Hey Google, tell me the latest (sports) news .”
